About us

This Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) is sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. The primary objective of this integrated research program is to understand how insulators behave when exposed to high electric fields, and to design materials that are tolerant to enormous electric fields for application in high voltage, high energy density capacitor technologies. We seek to achieve this objective through state-of-the-art “scale-bridging” computations, synthesis, processing, and electrical characterization, and through the creation of a relational database.
